Kanye West's Jesus Is King IMAX film is set to debut in select cities across the United States starting Oct. 25. Setting the stage for the Nick Knight-directed film, West released a teaser Thursday (Oct. 17) on his website prior to the flick hitting the silver screen.

Tickets are now on sale for the experience on IMAX's website. The movie takes fans on West's journey to James Turrell's Painted Desert installation in Arizona. There will also be images shot at Yeezy's newly purchased Wyoming ranch. The trailer features a gospel rearrangement of 808s & Heartbreaks' "Say You Will" with a scripture from the Book of Mark. 

As for his much-delayed Jesus Is King album, West reportedly told Sunday Service attendees at George Washington University earlier in October that he's aiming to drop his long-awaited project alongside the IMAX movie on Oct. 25. The LP was slated to drop Sept. 27, but when Kanye played the project for fans in Chicago, Detroit and NYC during that same weekend, many noted the effort remained unfinished.

A rep for IMAX confirmed shows outside the United States taking place starting on Oct. 25 across the globe in locations such as the U.K., Ireland, Nigeria, Portugal, Kenya, Denmark, Finland, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Mongolia and New Zealand. Jesus Is King will be coming to Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Sweden on Nov. 8. 

Jesus Is King will be shown at 125 theaters internationally and more than 350 theaters in the United States. Watch the trailer below. Purchase tickets here.
